This award was established by the friends, alumni, faculty and staff of New College in honour of Betty Yeoman, mother of Ann Yeoman, former Dean of Students. She began spending her summers at New College from the time her daughter, Ann Yeoman, became Dean of Women (Wilson Hall) in 1987. She loved the busy world of the college and gave generously of her time, energy and interest. The award will be given to a resident of New College who has made an outstanding contribution to the residence community, perhaps in quiet or unique ways, without expectation of recognition or praise. Undergraduate students from any faculty, who have lived in one of the New College Residences for the current year are eligible to apply. The recipient must be in good academic standing, and preference will be given to a student with demonstrated financial need.
Value of award: Approximately $500
